My desire to help others began with studying psychology and sociology, but it was after experiencing severe whiplash when I was 17 that I discovered the physical and emotional benefits of holistic health and massage therapy. After graduating from West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 1997, I deepened my knowledge of the musculoskeletal system and related structures by taking Neuromuscular Therapy, providing deeper and more specific work to the muscles and tendons.
While continuing with my post-graduate training and exploring other therapies for my own healing, I pursued my interests in Craniosacral Therapy and Lymphatic Drainage Therapy, learning the very techniques that contributed to my own healing.
My techniques and treatments include CranioSacral Therapy, Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, Lymphatic Drainage Therapy, Unwinding & Positional Release.
I completed my Advanced Craniosacral Therapy with Upledger Institute in 2011. I have experience working with head trauma (concussion), neck injuries, whiplash, insomnia and an overstimulated nervous system, fatigue, anxiety, stress, headaches, and general overuse, pain and tension within the body. Providing a safe and compassionate space for my clients, I incorporate massage therapy skills with other techniques that enhance the body’s innate wisdom and natural ability to heal itself.
